Ex-England rugby player Mike Tindall did not hold back and reportedly made the scathing one-word remark as the Royal Family celebrated the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

Mike Tindall once showed how he felt about Prince Harry with a single scathing one-word remark.

The ex-England rugby player and husband of the Queen’s granddaughter, Zara, is believed to have made the frank remark following the platinum party at Buckingham Palace in June 2022. It was when Prince Harry had returned to celebrate the Queen’s landmark milestone. Tindall reportedly did not hold back what he thought about the Duke of Sussex. While the Prince did not attend the concert in front of Buckingham Palace Tindall was and found himself sat behind the now-Prince of Wales.

Following the concert, Tindall spoke to another guest and allegedly described Prince Harry’s behaviour as that of a “b******,” the Daily Express reports. Throughout the celebrations, Meghan and Harry made a single official appearance with the rest of the family. The pair were present at the thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral but otherwise did not make public appearances during the celebrations. While Zara did speak to Meghan, her husband did not engage in conversation with the Prince, opting instead to sit silently or speak with the Earl of Snowdon.

While rows of royals started to leave, Zara could be seen beside her husband who was waiting at the exit ready to talk to people leaving the building. Footage showed them being approached by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex who was seen chatting in an animated way with the Queen’s granddaughter.

Tindall’s alleged one-word scathing remark comes as he is due to be given an important role at the Invictus Games. The games were founded by the Prince in 2014 as a way to offer wounded veterans a competition similar to those in the Paralympics. Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams has said that Harry is “absolutely furious about this,” adding to GB News. “It has been announced, but very quietly.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle once enjoyed a special bond with Mike and Zara Tindall. But the friendship dissolved after the Duke and Duchess started after they began rubbing shoulders with Hollywood A-listers. Jane Owen, celebrity PR expert and founder of Jane Owen PR, previously told The Mirror that “Hollywood loves Royalty,” noting that both Zara and Mike “can take advantage of that interest and attention.”

She added: “If their team knows what they are doing they could potentially become even more popular in time than Meghan and Harry because they don’t have to combat the negative publicity and the mistakes they have made to regain trust and momentum.”
